I was reading a story where the Beatles had superpowers. I was wondering what superpowers the Beatles would have if it was based on them/something about them?

 

Like Paul for example, could have a power based on his love of animals, P.I.D or something else entirely.

 

What would be some superpowers for each of the four Beatles?

Based off the instruments they repainted in 1967:

John would have the ability to create massive waves with any liquid

Paul would have the ability to light things on fire with his mind

George would have the ability to shoot rainbows out of his hand

Ringo would have the ability to hypnotize people

And since they need enemies to fight (references in parentheses):

Mick would have the ability to scream so loud that it shatters all glass within a 5 mile radius (Shattered)

Keith would have the ability to snap bridge cables with his bare hands (Keith only uses the top 5 strings in open G)

In issue 1, Brian is seen as a background character eating a sandwich at a cafe when the glass shatters and we never hear from him again (5 vs 4 would be unfair)

Bill would have the ability to make it snow anywhere at anytime (She's So Cold)

Charlie would have the ability to cause blackouts with his mind (Paint It Black)

Shoot rainbows out of your hands? What kind of a power is that? How is George supposed to fight off Mick with that useless power?

(As for the 5 v 4 bit, just include the other Stones)

Paul as "Peaceman"  from that You Gave Me The Answer article he did on his site a few years back. His logic of ending war by shooting lasers that turn people peaceful makes me chuckle. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Btw, Keef is invincible lol.

I can't think of a more impressive superpower than "being a Beatle"

I didn't say this in the OP because i didn't want to make the post too violent but these rainbows kill anyone that it hits.

I... wow. In that case, how will Mick fight of George? These superpowers don’t seem very balanced... 

i love the idea of shooting killer rainbows out of your hands though

Mick shouts behind George and shatters his ears. As George clutches his ears, Keith comes in for the one two tango leaving it 5 v 3.

 

Though in the story, they had amazing powers but being actual pacifists, they always looked for a non violent way to save the day.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I'd like to have the following Beatle superpowers:

 - Snap my fingers and have a fresh bounty of attractive and willing women at my door

 - Write a number 1 song "just because we have to write one"

 - Keep selling out concerts in my seventies

 - Get studio time whenever I want it and have an amazing assortment of musicians wanting to record with me

 - Oh, and the rainbows thing would be cool too.

John: can see through lies and bullshit with his granny glasses.
Paul: can charm snakes, ladies, and everything in between.
George: doesn't even need glasses to see through lies and BS, and can lacerate with his wit.
Ringo: pacifies any situation merely by existing.

Oops, my bias showed ahdn_john_08_gif

Okay, revision: John can see through BS and George can slay the BS-dealers by shooting nonlethal eyelasers of snarkitude from under his eyebrows. I like that better.
